Product Description

What it is:

FACE PRIMER MADE WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS

Engineered to be the perfect companion to our award-winning ORIGINAL Mineral Foundation, Prime Time® is an effective face primer that is suitable for all skin types and forms of face makeup. Formulated without preservatives, oil, fragrance or skin irritants, it glides on like silk with no stickiness and helps to smooth out your complexion instantly before you apply foundation.

Infused with nourishing natural ingredients including vitamins C and E, soothing plant extracts and antioxidants, our popular foundation primer is an important prep step of your daily makeup routine that helps to reduce excess oil and the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, giving you a seamless satin canvas for your foundation of choice.

Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Silica, Magnesium Silicate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract

Usage: 

For best results, shake the bottle well before each use. A little goes a long way with this powerful foundation primer.

Apply one pump to your fingertips and spread the lightweight primer all over your face and neck in an even layer with sweeping upward motions. Allow the face primer to absorb into your skin before applying foundation.

This primer is a good primer. It does last long through out the day. It does have sun protection (SPF 30). The primer is easy to apply and blend. I would recommend this to someone who wants something easy to apply and blend.

I use this as my day-to-day primer. It’s really easy to apply and it makes look my makeup really good, although I have to let it dry a little bit for the foundation to look better. I have combo skin and it works good for me

Review for: Prime Time Foundation Primer 1 oz/30 ml more...
Very silicone-y primer with a very strong chemical scent. It feels nice when I put it on, but I never notice a difference in the application of foundation or longevity of my makeup. Doesn’t seem to do much for me.

I LOVE this primer, it's my absolute favorite and I wear it every time I do my makeup regardless of how simple or intricate it is. It blurs, keeps my skin moist with getting too oily, and keep my makeup on all day!

This is the first primer I ever used. I really liked it and I felt it did a great job of making my foundation stay on longer. I haven’t repurchased this only because of my blemishes I prefer a tinted primer.

I’ve tried so many different primers. I have oily skin and large pores. This primer works so well for me! My makeup lasts for hours! Some primers smell weird. This one doesn’t smell at all. I recommend it to everyone!!!

I've been using a lotion as a primer with my bare minerals powder but just found that they have this primer. Does it actually work? And does it make your face oily?

I usually only use primer during the drier winter months. Do you use this product under your makeup all the time?

I just started using this product and am worried about breakouts- has anyone experienced bad breakouts using this?
